Josh Goodman presents Victory on the Menu: Dining out in World War II

Between food shortages and rationing, American families faced plenty of challenges putting balanced meals on the table during World War II. Restaurants, cafeterias, bars, and nightclubs faced many of the same problems. Like the people they served, however, these institutions came up with lots of unique and innovative ways to keep pressing on while still adhering to wartime restrictions. Join Teacher Programs and Curriculum Coordinator Josh Goodman, PhD, for a delicious look at both the unique culture and cuisine of American restaurants during World War II.

Lunchbox Lectures are free and open to the public on every first and third Wednesday of the month. For more information call 504-528-1944 x 463.
